Men And Women Students Give
Their Opinions Of Each Other
The result of a survey to determine the opinions held by University men
and women students of each other reveals a variety of views, mostly deroga-
tory and surprisingly parallel. The question asked women students was,
"What, in your opinion, is the greatest fault of men students?" The question
asked the men students was, "What, in your opinion, is the greatest fault
of women students?"

drilling ability of the men. Squad

upon the ability of the corporal to
direct the movements of his squad,
and the ability of the men to follow
out his commands. Individual compe-
tion was principally carried out in the
execution of the manual of arms.

Mrs. Anna Dali
W Weds Former
John Boettiger Marries
President's Daughter In
New York
WASHINGTON, Jan. 18-('P)-The
President and Mrs. Roosevelt today
announced the marriage of their
daughter, Anna Roosevelt Dall, to
John Boettiger, former Chicago news-
The ceremony took place this morn-
ing about 9 o'clock at the President's
home in New York City on East 65th
street. It was performed by Judge
J. Frederic Kernochan of New York,
intimate friend of the family.
Mrs. Roosevelt and members of
the family attended. The others
present included Mrs. James Roose-
velt, Sr., mother of the President.
Mrs. James Roosevelt, Jr., Elliott, a
brother, and his wife, Ruth; John,
another brother, and Harry Hook-
er, a close friend of the family.
The couple immediately left for an
unannounced destination.
Boettiger has been residing in New
York City and they will make their
home there.
He recently left the Chicago Trib-
une and is now employed with the
motion picture producers of America.
For months before the marriage,
the capital had buzzed with rumors
of their romance.
The two were seen riding together
out at Fort Myer, where the Roose-
velts keep their horses, in the early
morning, and dancing together at
the fashionable Washington hotels
at night.
They became friends during the
Roosevelt campaign transcontinental
tour when Mrs. Dall was with her
father and Boettiger covered the trip
for the Tribune.

A warm fight was presaged in the United States Senate after President Roosevelt asked that body, in a
special message, to ratify American adherence to the World Court. Leading proponents of entry into the Court
are Joseph Robinson of Arkansas, Senate floor leader; Pat Harrison of Mississippi, and Hugo Black of Ala-
bama. Two veterans of many oratorical encounters are leaders of the opposition, Hiram Johnson of Cali-

To assert that Ann Arbor derives

casual observer; but to Perome Nam-
ias, who .is now conducting a map
analysis at the University for the
FERA, it is an established fact. -
Up from the warm stretches of the ...
Gulf sweep moisture-laden air mass-
es - down from the frozen stretches
of northern Canada sweep cold mass-
es, formed in the shape of a wedge, V
with the front of the masses sloping
backward at a sharp angle.
"Like a huge snow plow,'' Namias
says, "this moving wedge of cold air
bears 'down on the warm air from
the southern regions, sliding under
the warm air and tossing it up. As
this warm air rises, it begins to ex-
pand; as it expands, it cools; as it
cools, the moisture in it condenses,
causing our rains and snows."
It is an interesting fact, he says,
that during our last precipitation a
few days ago, while sleet was falling
on the inhabitants of Ann Arbor, u..
in higher atmosphere it was raining.
The rain in the upper stratas fell
through the extended tongue of the
cold air mass, causing it to become
sleet on it way down to the earth.
The principle behind these air mass
movements, Namias points out, is
that while they move away from the
regions in which they originate from
northern Canada or the Gulf, to
mention a few, they retain most of
their characteristics of temperature
and moisture. They may be com-
pared to vast armies which organize
and later move on into a new terri-
tory, brining with them their own
customs and completely dominating
the region.
The weather changes, however, pro-
ducing conditions in which the stu-
dent never knows whether to put on }
a topcoat or a overcoat when he sallies
forth in the morning, are the result
of the boundary intersections be-
tween the two currents of air, Nam-
